Probably not much to a hot rodder. Odd ball engine and transmission. Suggest that you might want to look in a PRINT edition of Hemming's Motor News (the on-line version doesn't show everything or at least make it easy to find). These magazines are available at any Barnes & Noble, many bigger magazine sellers and even some libraries where I see it when I need to do some research.

It will always be worth more with number matching engine and trans. But it hink its a good build lots of market for deseil cars. If you live in cali it may have more value since emmisons are taking the fun out of hot rodding in ca.

Be sure to get the intercooler installed properly. You should be able to get it sunk in front of the radiator. Might require a little cutting but its worth it dont try to use a smaller intercooler they are good ones and could cost more to replace than its worth. Best to make the stock one fit. I have seen this intercooler installed in a ford ranger so i know you can make them fit.

Be sure to try to sneak the fuel pump and original gas tank under the car if possible. The with the factory lincoln tank you may have trouble getting the proper fuel pressure and cleanlyness needed to run a modern deisel. Be sure to run good filters either way. One little piece of trash and your deisel pump will need costly rebuild.

I like the build how about some pictures? With this motor you can use a bullydog to switch between mpg and power on the fly its actually pretty cool. If your looking to sell make sure its bio-deisel ready. That will push the price a few dollars more. Also may want to look into propane injection for the test drive purposes. It will also help if you want to post a major dyno numbers for sale.

I'm curious how tall a 7.3 is compared to a 430. A 430 BARELY fits in a '61-65 Lincoln, height-wise. Will the diesel fit under the hood?

I was thinking the same thing it also is pretty wide in some areas.

With the right gearing and a the turbo, it should get pretty good MPG, maybe 18?

I got the impression he was asking about the value of the old engine and trans, once removed from the car.

The bigger question is, how much more does the diesel weigh? I'm guessing an extra 200-300 lbs before you add in the heavier trans, radiator, etc.

Probably the opposite 200 pounds less. Cast intake and manifolds can add a lot of weight to an engine. Trans may be heavier radiator is alum in the truck and old style in car. I bet it is lighter as well. Fluids will have some weight to them since more oil, trans and Antifreeze will all be a few quarts mpre than stock.

Stock engine may have little to no value unless its in good condition. I would think under a 1000 if its good rebuilder and maybe 1500 if its a good runner but has needs. Maybe some paint and new parts could help add some valvue if resale is needed for the build.

Fyi from experience do as much work with the car stock and running as possible. Once the motors out its a brick until its 100 percent again. Certainly dont want to Push it aroun the garage or yard. Work a head of time and plan a quick swap with everything lined up. Unless the motor is already dead then do whatever works.

Well finally got some time to pull the old motor and try he diesel fitting. For the most part the diesel fits snug,have some minor fab work to relocate the oil cooler and obviously the motor mounts. This car is for sure getting a cowl hood! Which I suspected. Was able to reverse the oil pan with minor altering which made the fit very easy, wrong on getting some pics up soon

the diesel weights 920 pounds itself and if u using a E4OD it weights i believe around 330 pounds. i own a 7.3 nonintercooled 1 in a 96 f250 and if i had bigger tires and 3:73s id get better mileage. honestly my suggestion would be go 6.9-7.3 idi turbo it and u will get better mileage and it only takes 3 wires to run . 1 for starter 1 for fuel shutoff solenoid and 1 other 1. the older idis get better mileage to. my final suggestion get a custom tuned chip for ur 7.3 powerstroke dont go off the shelf as they will eat a nice built up auto

oh and with 7.3 injectors u can figure out roughly what horsepower u can make with 1cc of fuel equals 2.3hp. try it with a 140cc thats what the last of teh 7.3s had in it factory. u should be real close if not on the money
